“Tragedy, then, is an imitation of an action that is serious, complete, and of a certain magnitude; in language embellished with each kind of artistic ornament, the several kinds being found in separate parts of the play; in the form of action, not of narrative; through pity and fear affecting the proper purgation of these emotions”

Aristotle’s Definition of Tragedy

Subida al Cielo -Ascent into Heaven- is the result of experimenting with the possibilities of a photographic sequence as a means to transcend a specific subject and deal more openly with an abstract theme. Some pictures allure to visions of mythological creatures, journeys into the afterlife, angels, guardians, apparitions, eden gardens; all of which lie in contraposition to the gravity of the body -in an attempt to make suffering on earth comprehensible, shareable.
